Being an ER doctor doesn't really give me much perspective on biopharma stocks, except when I get a chance to ask questions to the oncology consultants and other specialists that roll through the ED. Occasionally there's a product that comes through aimed at my specialty, however, and it's hard to resist dropping an opinion. Usually that opinion is negative, and it always cracks me up when non-physicians attack me for it rather than being glad for the free perspective from the target market.

One of those products is Adasuve, a mystifying and pointless inhaled sedative for psychiatric patients in the ER. It's one of those products that seems to have been developed simply to justify the platform technology, without appropriate market research to see if it was commercially viable. From an ER doctor's perspective, he's unlikely to call for this expensive apparatus regardless of the circumstance. Cooperative patients are typically left alone or administered an oral sedative if it seems to be indicated. Uncooperative patients are not going to comply with an inhaler and have to be held down for an intramuscular injection, as unfortunate as that sounds. No one I know is pining for better alternatives in that department.

I'm not surprised that Adasuve sales don't seem to be making an appearance after nine months. No ER docs I know have ever heard of it, and I'm sure I'd be in that camp as well if it wasn't for my biopharma hobby. Meanwhile. Alexza's finances seem to be listing to port and it's clear they've neglected the rest of their pipeline to focus resources on the Adasuve launch. I doubt it makes a difference - their follow on drugs don't look any less unnecessary than Adasuve.

Alexza seems to have taken their first steps into the debt death spiral and the only question in my mind is whether their bankruptcy will be in 2016, or beyond.

While Adasuve does not have a large market, the delivery device will change the standard of care in the United States. First patients will prefer it (fear of needles) and two doctors/hospitals will love it for preventing injury to their staffs and their patients (fear of being sued). The agreement with Teva will help finance them until more marketable drugs make it to market. Until then, Alexa looks forward to launching of Adasuve the United States and earning from Europe.

Everything I read says this stock was going to double when I bought it at 1.45 a month or so ago. I still feel very good about and I think it is still undervalued.

Upcoming catalysts that will provide a high run up before pdufa. Between the upcoming rally, the potential of az-004, and their drug delivery technology this can be a multi-bagger by the end of the year and in the long term/

ALXA is a stock that returns the favor in the risk you put in to it. I wouldnt be surprised if it hits 4.50 a share.

Stock gets a second chance to make their points in person to FDA. Low price right now. Much needed drug, takes agitation off of schizophrenia and Bipolor patients.

The company can address the safety issues from the recent CRL, and investors will greet the upcoming announcement of an FDA meeting date with optimism. Concerns of dilution down the road will be put aside in a run up off recent lows.
